BOE: Ready for Election Day

Flag waving in air

WAYNE COUNTY, Ohio, March 16, 2020 — ALL polling locations will be OPEN on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 from 6:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. even if the facility is closed for normal business that day.

Three locations have been relocated.  They are as follows:

New Locations

Election Officials working at polling locations have been instructed and will be taking safety precautions regarding sanitizing surfaces and washing their hands.

Voters are encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizer and/or wash their hands, use their knuckles for making selections on the voting machines, and practice social distancing while in attendance at the polling location.

Special curbside voting will be offered at each polling location.  Please ask someone going into the location to ask an Election Official to come out to you to be assisted OR contact our office at 330-287-5480 asking us to contact the specific polling location for you.

Please be patient!  We had many regular poll workers call off because of health reasons.  We are very fortunate to have many people who have volunteered to work the polls within just the past few days.  The Election Officials at each polling place are dedicated and will strive to do their best to assist voters on Election Day.

Please thank your Election Officials for their service under very extraordinary circumstances!
